The discovery of spontaneous symmetry breaking in particle physics was the greatest contribution in Nambu's achievements. There is another class of symmetries that exist in the low energy nature, yet is doomed to be broken at high energy, due to a lack of protection of the gauge symmetry. I shall review our approach to search for this class of symmetry breaking, the lepton number violation linked to generation of the matter-antimatter asymmetry in our universe. 


Unified gauge theories and the baryon number of the universe
I suggest that the dominance of matter over antimatter in the present universe is a consequence of baryon-number--nonconserving reactions in the very early fireball. Unified gauge theories of weak,
Muon Number Nonconservation in a Unified Scheme of All Interactions
It \vas pointed out some time ago!) that a unified gauge model of all interactions based on a simple group possesses an attractive feature of explaining both the smallness of the fine structure
Experimental method of detecting relic neutrino by atomic de-excitation
The cosmic background neutrino of temperature 1.9 K affects rates of radiative emission of neutrino pairs (RENP) from metastable excited atoms, since its presence blocks the pair emission by the
Effect of Relic Neutrino on Neutrino Pair Emission from Metastable Atoms
A possiblity of measuring the cosmic neutrino temperature $\sim 1.9 K$ and other important quantities such as the chemical potential $\mu$ and the decoupling temperature $T_d$ is discussed, using the
Radiative emission of neutrino pair from nucleus and inner core electrons in heavy atoms
Radiative emission of neutrino pair from atomic states is a new tool to experimentally investigate undetermined neutrino parameters such as the smallest neutrino mass, the nature of neutrino masses
Neutrino spectroscopy with atoms and molecules
We give a comprehensive account of our proposed experimental method of using atoms or molecules in order to measure parameters of neutrinos still undetermined; the absolute mass scale, the mass
Neutrino pair emission from excited atoms
We explore a possibility of measuring the absolute magnitude and the nature (Majorana vs Dirac) of neutrino masses, by using a novel process of neutrino pair emission from metastable excited atoms.
Dynamics of two-photon paired superradiance
We develop for dipole-forbidden transition a dynamical theory of two-photon paired superradiance (PSR). This is a cooperative process characterized by two photons emitted back to back with equal
Macro-coherent two photon and radiative neutrino pair emission
We discuss a possibility of detecting a coherent photon pair emission and related radiative neutrino pair emission from excited atoms. It is shown that atoms of lambda- and ladder-type three level
